Abstract

This paper describes methods used to construct an interactive installation using human motion to animate both a visual and aural particle system. It outlines the rotoscoping, meta-motion processing, aural and visual rendering systems. It goes into detailed explanation of the "particle flow" systems which lend form to the virtual characters. The paper finishes with a description of the tracking system and "inverse interaction", used by the installation.
